My Axim got a face lift

sshot002Probably I'm not supposed to talk about it here but what the heck, Dell abandoned me on this matter so... I installed WM6.1 in my Axim X51v and I'm glad that I did it. It's like I bought a new Pocket PC. My Axim works faster than when it was using the so called "legal" WM5 ROM from Dell.

One of the reason why I have not done it before was because many of these 3rd parties ROM do not work well with .Net applications and in my work with Tweaks2K2 that's really important. But these ROM have gone a very long way from the point of view of quality. The one I'm using does not have to envy anything to any of the ROM released by Dell in the past.

Dell x51v WM6 (Football Edition) - xda-developers

An "unsupported" version of WM6  has been released for x51v at xda-developers. Some .NET applications, including Tweaks2K2, have been known to have problems or do not work at all in these ROMs. Unfortunately in these cases there is nothing that we can do about it.

Sorry. . .

Bye Bye Axim

Dell's Blog post says all:

First off, sorry for the delay on this. In addition to recent coverage by blogs like Engadget, jkOnTheRun and others, I’ve gotten a few e-mails and a comment from Direct2Dell reader David H. Deans who’ve asked me to confirm whether we’ve discontinued the Axim line or not. The answer is yes, we have.

Tweaks2k2.net is great application, which makes registry editing a child's play.
A must have for somebody, who does not want to waste hours and hours of time tweaking his/her device
